Sandown 2nd January

2 Jan 2016 Race Previews

We have two runners in the mares’ listed hurdle over 2m 4f. Gitane Du Berlais (Ruby) reverts to hurdles here after finishing second over fences at Carlisle last time. The form of that race has worked out well and she is fit and has been in good form at home. Petit Parisienne (Bryan Cooper) was second on her reappearance at Naas and she too will hopefully get into the money here. However, it looks like a hot contest and Polly Peachum could be the one to beat.

Yorkhill (Ruby) goes for the Tolworth Hurdle over 2 miles. He drops back in trip today having won his maiden hurdle in good style over 2m 4f at Punchestown last month. However, this should prove a tough two miles in the conditions and he goes here in great form. Hopefully, he will take all the beating.
